You can still light up pretty much anywhere you want, outside. Just so long as you're not around large crowds.
I've changed my tune somewhat about smoking laws, and I obviously don't want the government deciding what I can and can't do. However, as a non-smoker (outside of the rare cigar after a big Ravens or Orioles win) no cigarette smoke makes everything more pleasant, whether I am at a game or on the beach.
If all smokers had manners, and refrained from smoking around other non-smokers, as well as the ability to go without a cigarette every 20 mins, there wouldn't need to be laws about smoking.
So what's next? The Bloomberg offensive. No nacho's for you fat arse! You have to leave the stadium, do two laps around it and THEN they'll sell you a vegitable platter out there. Oh quit your whining! It's for you own good. If you don't lose weight Eskimos will hunt you for your blubber. This is America where you are only free to be one of the Beautiful People. All others will be persecuted.
If I were a woman I would have an undeniable Constitutional right enshrined in law to make decisions about and exercize control over my vagina. No one would have the right to discriminate against me based on those decisions I have made. I wish I had a right to make decisions about and exercize control over my body and no one could discriminate against me based on the decisions I have made about MY BODY.

No on one is telling people that they cannot smoke only where they can smoke....and seriously u want to compare smoking to having control over a woman's vagina.....thanks for THAT laugh of the day!!!
One more right taken away. Now if they can just ban the drunks - no more loud cussing, no pizzing in the stands and bathroom sinks, no more fights, etc. that many also find disgusting and offensive.
So I stand there on the concourse at the rail smoking my cigarette in the open air looking outward from the stadium to a stadium parking lot. To the left is the Ravens Marching Band warming up. To the right of them is a bunch of tailgaters. In front of the Tailgaters is a line of men pissing through a fence. Indecent exposure and public urination is not a problem at all. Smoking outside in the open air, HUGE PROBLEM! I guess it's best to get those smokers away from the rail so kids can stand there and watch the men pee. Apparently the Stadium Authority doesn't care if your child see's a mans penis as long as they don't see his cigarettes. So the stadium Authority is obviously far more concerned with where people smoke than where they urinate.

I wonder if this applies to the Comcast center (UMD) where smokers are allowed to smoke outside the center on the terrace/deck area on the upper levels?
But once the nonsmoking lobby has succeeded in running smokers out of the stadium and off the property with their creeping agenda. Is that where it will stop? NOPE! Then the smokers will have to congregate in the smoking area across the street. The next thing you know smokers will have to stand in the median strip of 295 just outside DC. Then they'll go after the fatties. Because they already established that it's okay to discriminate against you based on what you put in your mouth and lungs. So of course they can discriminate against you based on what you put in you mouth and stomach. Do you think it's your body? No nacho's for you fat arse! Hit the streets and don't come back until you actually fit in your seat. Uh huh.......
Tell that to the DEA and the FDA... (not that I agree with them).
